the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a week from tomorrow, guys. october 3rd, thanks very much. bill clinton on mitt romney and the 47%. the former president talks to cnn's pierce morgan about the republican nominee and why the debates could make all the difference. >> announcer: this is the day. the day that we say to the world of identity thieves "enough." we're lifelock, and we believe you have the right to live free from the fear of identity theft. our pledge to you? as long as there are identity thieves, we'll be there. we're lifelock. and we offer the most comprehensive identity theft protection ever created. lifelock: relentlessly protecting your identity. call 1-800-lifelock or go to lifelock.com today. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties!
presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america
from the first debate and now going to express the opinion, no matter how good governor romney does, the mainstream media will call it a victory for president obama, or a flat-out gap loss for mr. romney and joe trippi joins me now. you're not going to contest my opinion, are you, joe, that the mainstream media is firmly behind a second obama term? you're not going to give me an argument, are you? >> i'm not going to argue with you about where the media is it on this. i think, look, if romney gasps the media is going to jump all over it. and you know, so, i think if he has a good performance, stuart, i do disagree. generally what happens in the very first debate, if the challenger succeeds, and part of the reason is, just being on the same stage with the president of the united states with such a huge audience, i mean, there is no filter between, during the debate. there's no filter between what romney is satisfying and what the american people are seeing, that generally, i worked for walter mondale in 1984, everybody believed he did very, very well in the first debate against reaga
choices is part of the debate. romney's campaign is no different. take a listen. >> if a student wants to go to a charter school or parochial or private school, the student can go and the federal money goes with the student. so that we -- we allow more choice for parents. i like every parent to have a choice and every child to have a chance. >> as for the teachers, savannah guthrie sat down with president obama and asked him about the strike in his hometown of chicago which pitted his former chief of staff against unions who support politically he does depend on. >> mitt romney said that president obama has chosen his side in this fight that you sided with the unions and last spring he said he can't talk up reform while indulging in groups that block it. >> well, you know, i think governor romney and a number of folks try to politicize the issue and do a lot of teacher bashing. when i meet teachers all across the country, they are so devoted and so dedicated to their kids. what we have tried to do is actually break through this left/right conservative liberal gridlock. >> joining me no
than that -- more of that in the debates. president obama and governor romney have different views about where to take this country internationally. host: where you expecting from the speech by the iranian leader today? guest: mach mod ahmadinejad -- mahmoud ahmadinejad is a fool. er.is a israel pahat denies the holocaust. he lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. i would expect a lot of lies about the united states. iran has very low support. they have support from hezbollah and the syrian government. most countries want nothing to do with the iranians. they have been violating their commitments on their nuclear enrichment programs. it is a program on the defensive. president obama has been doing a good job of pushing the iranians into a corner and we should continue that policy matter who wins the election and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. host: susan from new york. caller: good morning. their comments are very great. i have two questions, one regarding libya. one is regarding libya. the you think the al qaeda attacks and on the guy t
and president ahmadinejad. >>> not to be outdone in the foreign policy debate, mitt romney took the stage, too. he was at the clinton global initiative earlier this morning. former president clinton introduced him. he took a swipe at the obama administration by noting the current state of fairs overseas. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. the ambassador to libya was killed in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward flunuclea weapons capabilities. we feel like we're at the mercy of events rather than starting events. >> mr. romney reiterated that -- >>> it's the call everyone is talk about. packers versus seahawks. should the players union pull the members off the field to support the nfl referees? i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "is time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's deci
. these debates are not going to be a slam dunk for president obama as many people say. governor romney is very effective in that type of venue and setting and he looks presidential, so i think these debates are going to be very, very interesting. you saw both men at their best today. >> the great sasha eisenberg tweeted this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has been a lot of consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good move? >> well, look, first of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the road he gave his political opponents ammunition. i don't think there's going to be a long-term effect. the issues raised this week about he should have met with netanya netanyahu, other world leaders, there's some po
much debate between the republican candidate mitt romney and president obama -- we will open up the debate and expand the debate as we so often do on "democracy now, "to a third party candidates. we will be in denver, to and we will have third-party candidates responding to the same questions being put to mitt romney and president obama. we will broadcast democracy now.org and on radio as well. you raised the issue of the critical vote as we traveled through pennsylvania. a whole issue of voter suppression and having been in charlotte, a great civil-rights city, where the students from the historical black college in 1960 set up a lunch counter in to grant them and yet, what do we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. president obama won by 600,000 boats in pennsylvania last time. this really does determine the election. i don't care who you are for. this will determine the
have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates e very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties bee no know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current eleion season, republicans and democrats crpported both the child tax it andhe earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basicmor bipartisan policy to support workingfamilies. it is not a bunch freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers mo bringing up the 47% from the secretly videotaped moment in that fund-raiser back in, what, may. but no big sis hs going straight for that 47% line. noand quite interesting because bill clinton on my show tually a few months ago had, of course, supported mt romney over his record of bain capital and refused to join inhe obama super pac bashing of romney over that. >> that made news. >> it mad
's not good at that. he's great at giving big speeches but i think romney can do very well over three debates. >> he's got -- you know, the president has, i think, kind of a contempt for sound bites. >> that's a great way to put it. >> what i would say back to that is "mr. gorbachev," tear down this wall is a sound bite. sometimes big ideas have to be torn down into sound bites. >> we have not. jfk in his inaugural speech. sound bites. >> that's just another way of saying clarity of thought. i think we're still in a place where if president obama had to build his library in the next, you know, x number of years, what would you -- is there a short phrase you could put on the wall? lots of paragraphs, and that's right. but there's also, you know, something to be said for a pithy way of talking. >> and the problem is there is a statement they put on the wall, but they change it every day. >> yeah. >> they're responding to barack obama's mistakes instead of saying it's economy stupid or are you better off than you were four years ago, even if they had borrowed from reagan anded with that every da

at a time where there's a debate about ongoing health care in this country. mitt romney in a "60 minutes" interview was asked, going to an emergency room is an option for the uninsured. listen to that clip quickly. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million american whose don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital, and give them care. and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> for those people you were profiling there are in your film, was that their only option, that particular waiting room in that particular hospital and that level of care? >> for the vast majority of the community, it's the only place they know where to go. the safety net system, the last resorts in oakland and all over the country. there are a patchwork of clinics you can go to but for the most part, highland has the ability to the deal with factors like langua

of free speech is. i thought he did a great job. governor romney, particularly in his education nation interview with brian williams, showed in that setting can be enormously feive, he ed w prepared. it's why i think the debates are going to be very interesting. these debates are not going to be a slam dunk for president obama as many people say. governor romney is very effective in that type of venue and setting and he looks baargointo bery, i think these very interesting. you saw both men at their best today. >> the great sasha eisenberg tweeted this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on thetopics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has bn aotf consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good ve loirst of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the
wednesday, and once we get into that stretch, there's going to it be debate after debate after debate. not at much time to get out on the campaign trail and that presents a problem for this campaign. >> all right, jim acosta. i know you're going to listen to romney's speech and bring us new sound bites as he begins speaking. jack nicklaus speaking and introducing the governor. jim acosta, thanks. see you later. >>> the romney campaign has k p company in ohio. president obama makes stops there with rails at two universities. bowling green and kent state university. coming up, kent state university in northeast ohio. student there are really excited. you see them here lining up for tickets to see the president. we'll talk to a student reporter at the bottom of the hour. >>> the outspoken and controversy leader of iran addresses the united nations general assembly later today. a live look for you at the united nations. the leader of the ivory coast speaking right now. the iranian president, mahmoud ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak in about two hours. western lead verse a history of wal
or mitt romney of being substandlesubsta substanceless individuals. they know a lot about a lot of things. if they are trying to reach out to voters -- >> let's remember would things. one, head flood the debates. you know. three presidential, one have theal. whole month will be locked with issues and serious things. number two, isn't it interest the way foreign policy has now become critical to this election. >> "cnn newsroom with carol costello" begins right now. >>> happening now, tension in the gulf, iran claiming overnight that it test fired four miss designed to hit war ships. u.s. navy on guard watching iran's next moves. >>> controversial view. the white house defending president obama's appearance on the daytime talk show. republicans saying that he's choosing showbiz over foreign policy. obama sending hillary clinton to the u.n. for face-to-face meetings. >>> seattle stunner. the call everyone is talking about this morning. packers/seahawks. clock ticking. then this happened. >> who did they give it to? touchdown! >> oh. two refs, two different calls. and one huge upset
with the audience. will it resonate with voters? i'm sure that's on governor romney's mind, too. >> sure. well, you know, one of the things i think you are going to see him doing today is trying to pivot this debate about foreign policy back to jobs and trade and opportunity. i think he will make the argument that when we -- when our aid program should be built towards developing free market partners around the world, helping -- nations and embrace the free market and embrace trade. that in the long run helps american prosperity and creates jobs here at home. the man who is hosting him, president clinton, when he came into office, one of the first things bill clinton did was join with republicans to pass the north american free trade agreement over the objections of democrats. he worked with -- got a majority of republicans and minority of democrats in a coal toygs pass that p president obama has not passed a single free trade agreement of his own making since coming into office. i think you will see a subtle distinction between drawn. >> what do you mean of his own making? because he has -- trade
been before in these first couple of debates. >> steve: i think you're right. a couple of days ago when he was on "60 minutes," while it wasn't back to back, when you saw the president and then you saw mitt romney, i think a lot of people, because mitt romney has been demonized, it's like, wait a minute. i kind of like that guy. >> i think that's right. a lot of folks on twitter, i was tweeting about these dueling interviews. when mitt romney answered the question of what's your big idea? and he did not hesitate. he said, freedom. and now that we're seeing hillary out there yesterday, essentially proposing a global tax on the, quote, elite, mitt romney was exactly right to say our freedom is under attack at every level and my policies are going to be designed to lift everybody up and remind people that without liberty, all of this goes away. i thought that was a brilliant answer and framed the debate very well and he needs to now infuse that with a lot of more specifics, which i think you'll see. >> brian: they've got to use paul ryan that. would help. if he wanted to fully use his numb
